“Nice hotel and actually a good area”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Have stayed here a number of times and always had a pleasurable stay. Decent sized room and bathroom, mini bar (fridge) comes in handy for keeping drinks cold. Friendly staff, nice pool area for relaxing and a basic but perfectly acceptable breakfast.

Those that say there are no restaurants nearby, really ought to open their eyes, within a 5 minute walk you will come to numerous bars, cafes and a few good restaurants along with a couple of supermarkets and other shops, banks etc. All of these are mainly frequented by locals, hence fair prices and good quality food & service.

Would happily stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for four nights and found it very relaxing. The hotel was clean, quiet and well-maintained. My room was very spacious and comfortable, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the sound insulation perfect, and the breakfast was adequate. It is ideally situated for Faro airport, the Forum Algarve shopping centre, and the pleasant city of Faro. I recommend this hotel.

Stayed for one night on our way home.
Clean and comfortable room.
Not a place for an extended stay for a holiday, but perfect for an early morning flight or business.
Receptionist helpful and pleasant.
Would return and recommend.

Room Tip: We were in room 218, overlooking front of hotel - residential area.

Advertised as the closest hotel to Faro airport, it was. Flight arrived at 11.15pm so no transfer bus available so took a taxi.
Hotel in middle of residential area with no restaurants nearby.
Good sized clean room on first floor. No double beds available although hotel wasn't busy.
Good breakfast with hot and cold dishes buffet style. Staff friendly and helpful.

hotel is very close to airport but miles from everywhere else.... we spent a lot on taxis and eventually hired a car. rooms are fine and we had no problems over our ten day stay. Staff are very helpful and cheerful. Bar is a joke as it is never manned and is dull and extra boring Breakfast is really good again because of great staff. Overall good value for money but sorry we are not coming back

Close to the airport,lovely large clean room with excellent fittings. Ignore other reviews I am fussy,and this is really a good hotel. Yes the pool is small,but it is not a holiday hotel!! Plenty of sunbeds..... nice clean pool and it was very quiet whilst we were there although didnt really use it much. We needed a hotel close to the airport and also close to the football stadium. You would probably have to use taxis into Faro,we had a hire car so this wasn't a problem. Breakfast plentiful,although don't expect a full english. Be up early for the scrambled egg though after 10am and you have missed out. Bar prices expensive,but found every bar/restaurant to be the same.

Wanted a couple of days in the sunshine and so cheap flights with easyJet and Monarch booked. Arrived late but short journey by taxi from the airport (€8 max

Hotel 1: Check in easy and given room 202. Really a bit crummy, dirty, neglected- no absolutely terrible but certainly not somewhere you'd want to spend much time. Tried the Aircon and it wasn't working so went to reception to see if they could fix it. So late, no one on duty so they gave me room 406

Hotel 2: room 406; lovely fresh, modern well decorated room with flat screen tv and great aircon, nice views- everything that would get a good review here. Hard to believe they were in the same building.

The facilities are fine, nice sun beds next to the pool, free towels if you're lucky, none available on Sunday for some reason. Pool smallish but enough to cool off in.

Staff very friendly, free transfer back to airport in their minibus, food typical but not expensive, beer cheap enough - 0,5l lager and huge pile of chips and a decent cheeseburger with plenty of change from €10

Breakfast has taken a kicking here in some reviews and it's a dark room stuck in the 80s but was fair enough, some fruit, breads, coffee, tea, eggs and hot dogs with cold cheese and meats. Again, standard stuff, just one complaint.

The Muzak. I don't really like loud music while I eat, and this was fairly loud, but was muzak not music. Worse still, the cd player seemed to be stuck on repeat so for the 40mins I was there, first day "I would do anything for you" played endlessly like something that should have been banned under the Geneva convention. Next day it was a Muzak version of "isn't she lovely" again and again, and again and again

Oh, someone mentioned that the tv /bar area had competing loud sounds of the radio and tv; ask the staff and they'll turn off one or the other or just turn off the tv if it's bothering you.

Wifi is also free here, Skype worked fine,

Overall, a nice place to spend a couple of days to relax, would go back if I could be guaranteed a room on the forth floor, but no way would I accept a second floor room.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a new room, fourth floor good, second floor terrible
